  • Devauden calendars are on sale now at Devauden Village Shop.  The calendar features photographs by local residents and all profits will go towards the repairs needed for St James church.

  • Sadly, John North-Row died, rather suddenly, early on Easter Sunday.  John was an active member of our community and was church warden at St. James Church for many years.  He was a gifted reader and he will be greatly missed by the congregation.
